Six years in heaven :(. I spent today both laughing because of memories of you as well as crying from the sadness of missing you. I know I’ve said it before but I miss your laugh so much. I played some videos where we can actually hear you laughing. I’m so greatful I have those

I spent the day yesterday no different then any other day with a thought of missing you! I tried to find ways to honor your memory and to celebrate your life. It's funny how protective Leiara is of you even still, you are her Uncle Jimmy. We spent the day surrounded by Scooby doo & ending with one of your favorite movies Practical Magic. It's funny because I somehow feel you were beside Leiara and I watching right along with us and just for a moment it brought me closer to you!

Happy Birthday Jimmy. Love you and miss you always. I love the signs you send to let us know you are still with us. I never realized the effect Scooby would have on me every time I see him. You know what's next....I love you once....I love you twice......I love you more than beans and rice. XXXOOO

Who knew four years later I could be missing you so much,but in different ways. You have been on my mind so much lately even though honestly there is not a day since you have been gone that I have not thought about you, or your name has not been spoken. Memories will pop in like a flashback and for that brief fleeting moment it's like your with me, & in the next second your gone again. Like mom said it was always supposed to be me & you taking care of each other & sometimes my heart hurts just so much & even though I'm not alone , I feel so alone. Please watch over Leiara & make sure she is always protected especially since she is starting her first year of high school. I know you would be so proud of her she's a great kid & I want amazing things for her! I love you always & forever!

Sibling to Sibling on your 4th anniversary in heaven 3/11/16

Siblings are your relative,best friend, and partner in crime.
You share your parents,last name, childhood experiences and memories.
They are the first person you turn to when you want to share something exciting or in times of need.
They have always been there unconditionally and you believe they will always be.
To you my sibling in heaven the way you are missed NO words could describe. The day you left and went to heaven a piece of ME died.
I'm learning to live again in a different way without your physical presence. It has taken a long time and I know I may not ever fully recover.
What gives me hope is that I KNOW you are with me in spirit watching, and guiding from afar with love and grace until we meet again.

Today we celebrate what would have been your 36th birthday. As I look back at the pictures of the day you were born with your mouth wide open and your cute little Alfalfa hair do mom always reminds me that I would tell everyone you were " my baby" NOT my little brother.. But "my baby". Our parents were very young when they had us barely babies themselves and even though there is no manual that tells you what to do mom got one thing right from the very beginning ... She helped foster that bond between us that went deeper than most brother & sisters and for that I am eternally greatful. She made us promise to always be there for each other and somehow we have defied odds and continue to do so even after your passing. There have been too many signs and wonderful messages to believe anything else! I know you are always with me and I can call upon your strength to help me through even the most difficult of times.
Today we celebrate you & keep your memory & spirit alive. Happy birthday baby brother! I love you with all my heart, forever & always

Some times things happen that I can't explain and I think it is you trying to let me know that you are ok and you are close by. Watch over your sister and Leiara. Keep them safe and in your heart. Know how much you are loved and missed. Keep laughing, loving and being you.
Love always Mom

Lit a candle for you today brother! <3

"God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone. Especially James Robert Mann Jr. on this 3rd anniversary in heaven.

In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever."

Amen.

Thanks for the message that was sent through a mutual friend reminding me to think about what I want & don't want and speaking my mind. I made you promise me you would do whatever was in your power to contact me from the other side... I had no idea I would receive that validation in many,many different ways. I love you forever and always... With all of my heart!

Happy Birthday 35th Jim.
Miss you ever day that goes by. By the way did you do that to Bob's car to let me know you hear me when I talk to you. That was pretty good. Keep leaving me signs.  Don't forget to say Happy Birthday to Steph.

Jim,
I miss your laugh. Your love for your family and friends. I miss that Jenn lost her best friend and Leiara lost her Uncle Jimmy. I miss the best son anyone could have.
I'm thankful for the time we had together and that my life was better because you were a part of it. 
I know that you are in a better place where there is no pain or suffering. That you, Grampa and Mike are all watching over us and protecting us until it is our time to be together again.
Love Always
Mom

Hi Jimmy,

You live on forever in the many great memories, I read through your letters from Berwick and the awesome journal your Mom uncovered. Camping in NH. You loved a good campfire :). I am waiting for Moon Boots to come back in style...no one wore them like you.

Love always & forever,
Aunty Cheryl

PS (I know you've been waiting for this)
I love you one once

Jim, I still haven't not will I find a friend like you. I miss you so much and wish I just let you kidnap and we should've just went to New Mexico. I cherish every moment we had together. Like just sitting there and listening to great milenko in your car or completely forgetting you were a mechanic. I really miss your laugh.

Well today marks your second year in heaven. You are missed so very much. I try to keep your memory alive by talking to Leiara pretty much daily about you. Uncle Jimmy would have loved that...this was Uncle Jimmy's favorite. It still hurts even after two years. This year has certainly had it's challenges for me personally and there were times I really needed my brother and best friend to lean on. I know you are watching over all of us. At times your voice or laugh will pop in my head and will sit back and smile. Please know there is not a day I do not carry you with me in my heart and in my mind. "I love you once, I love you twice, I love you more than beans and rice!"

Well I'm feeling sad today because this is almost more of your favorite holiday than Christmas. You would have been baking for a few days now getting ready for the crazy spread of food you always had for Thanksgiving. Tonight you would be making last minute cookies & Jon, Leiara & I would be trying to eat them all on you. You'd smack my hand & yell at me not to eat them all! :) Jon also found a cute letter from Leiara reminding him to bring her soccer bag to your house. I'll try to post the pic here. We all miss you so much Including Blue, Chloe,& Tandy. Happy Thanksgiving!

It's been a year since you passed and I still can't believe that my best friend and brother I never had is gone. I think it's because I still talk to you all the time and like always, I come to you with all of my problems. Whenever I need you, I can still hear your voice and when I'm really sad, I can still hear your one of a kind laugh. You will be my best friend forever, WE LOVE YOU <3

When we found out that we're having another baby,I wanted to call and tell you that you were going to have another Godchild..but then, sadly, I remembered that I couldn't. But that sadness quickly turned to happiness, because I realized you already knew and I realized that you've already met her. I hope you sent a little piece of your soul with her. We love and miss you always <3

You gave the BEST hugs, and I sure could use one right now!  I love you forever and always <3

It’s been a year but feels like twenty

March 11, 2013

I can’t believe today marks one year in heaven.  It’s been a year but feels like twenty. I know in my heart you are in a better place and are no longer suffering. In some ways I know we were lucky to have had you with us as long as we did, and in others I’m angry that it wasn’t long enough.  God has a plan for all of us and only he knows what is best.  I just have to remind myself that you are in a better place, and are no longer suffering. It saddens me to think how much Leiara has grown this past year and that you are not here to see her mature and grow into a beautiful little young lady.  Or you never had the opportunity to see her wear glasses.  I know those might seem like silly things but they wouldn’t have been to you.  I am comforted to know she has her very own special guardian angel watching over her and that you would do everything in your power to keep her out of harm’s way.  I’m hoping you are with mom today as well, as this day will be especially tough for her.  Please send her a sense of comfort and peace that you are alright to help her get through the day. We all love you so much and think of you every day.  You are the best little brother a sister could ask for! I love you Jimmy! <3

Can I marry you NOW?

March 14, 2012

When I got married Jimmy was 3 yrs old he asked me if he could marry me. I told him he couldn't and thus started the question Why not? I said because I am your Aunt and he said I don't care, I want to marry you. So I said well you can't because you are not old enough...again he said I don't care, I want to marry you. He was relentless in his desire. Finally I said OK you can marry me when you are as tall as me. I figured this would satisfy him...but nooooooo. Jimmy proceded to drag a kitchen chair over to me stand on it and said...I'm taller than you can I marry you now? Well as you know we never did get married but the memory of that moment always brings a smile to my soul.

Rest in Peace XXXOOO

Love Aunty Cheryl
